About Cigliuti

The Fratelli Cigliuti winery is situated on the Serraboella hill, some 350 metres above sea level overlooking Neive, one of three villages responsible for producing Barbaresco. Renato inherited his father’s 6.5 hectare property which remains family owned and run and is now into its fifth generation with daughters Claudia and Sylvia. Winemaking techniques lean towards the traditional. Estate-grown, handpicked grapes are fermented with native yeasts in stainless steel, then aged in larger Slavonian oak barrels along with some barriques. Dolcetto and Nebbiolo grapes grow in the calcareous soils of the southwest-facing vineyards, while Barbera is cultivated on clayey sites with a south-eastern exposure. The wines show great complexity, minerality and personality.

"A small family estate located on the hill of Serraboella, the production is minuscule and the wines are made with a traditionally simple approach, not pumped up with new wood or made to a style, these are wines of terroir and tradition." - Nick Stock

About Renato Cigliuti

Renato Cigliuti is a genuine farmer. He was born in 1938 and educated to primary level before undertaking his life work. In the post-war years, when many of his contemporaries left the countryside in search of work, he stayed to cultivate his great passion. As he puts it, separating himself from the land would have been like tearing himself away from his family. The estate is only seven-and-a-half acres, and he's worked it practically every day since childhood. These days his daughters Claudia and Silvia still follow this philosophy and work directly in the vineyards, overseeing the production of the wines from start to finish.
